Don’t Miss Out on the Energy From the March 2018 New Moon.

The new moon of March 2018 happened on the 17th of this month. I felt the energy like none I’ve ever felt before. I had an emotional dump a couple of days before it happened. I knew something was in the air. I felt it hard! Now if you know me at all, and follow my blogs, you already know I love the moons, full and new and the powerful energy that comes with them.

I set my calendars to these monumental events. Why? Because they impact me in such a way that I would be a fool to miss them. But you’re probably thinking, ok Iva, the new moon was last night, I missed it and all the wonderful energy it brought with it..

Wrong! I used to think like this too. Then I started digging a little deeper and researching and learning as much as I could about the moons and the energy they give us. I got good news for you!! Did you know you can still take in all the new moon’s energy for up to two weeks after it happens?


So what does this energy mean?

So what’s the big deal and why should you care? Lemme tell ya.

This month’s new moon is in Pisces which may not mean anything to you but listen up. Without getting too astrological on you, this means old wounds will surface so you can view them again. They come up for that exact reason. You aren’t done dealing with them and you need to!

It means it’s time to dig deep, real deep, into past conflicts, old hurts, things that are still weighing down on you and give them a fresh perspective. One of love, forgiveness and release. You already know holding on to all that old shit is no good for you anyway. Get rid of all this toxic energy, asap. Do what you gotta do but for the love of God and all things holy, dump it.

What now?

Forge ahead!! Now that you’ve dumped all this toxic energy (you did do that, right?) it’s time to look ahead into the future. I’m not big on planning because things change in a blink of an eye but I do “surface” plan which means, I have an idea and I should probably look at ways of implementing it because I think it’s a good idea!

You’ve got rid of the old and now it’s time to make room for the new. What do you want? What kinds of things do you want in your life? Do you already have an idea or dream that you let sit on the backburner but didn’t bring to the light because you were too bogged down with yesterday’s shit?

Release it now!! Your dream, goal, plan and/or idea. You have two weeks under this new moon energy to start making progress on this. Get at it!

But wait, there’s more to this energy!!

Mercury Retrograde is gonna be rearing it’s head during this time. Did you just groan? I feel ya. I remember a time when I used to be terrified of Mercury Retrograde. Not anymore. Bring it! Mercury is a blessing for me. It teaches me things like patience and strengthens my sense of humour.

During this time, while you’re dumping and planning, shit might not go the way you want it to. Don’t fret. That’s good ole’ Merc throwing curveballs at you. Take a deep breath and laugh it off. I’ve learned to do this now with this energy.

Remember, everything is temporary, even your troubles.

Get cracking!

You got two weeks to take in this energy and get shit done. Stop wasting your time wallowing over yesterday’s hurts and frustrations. Acknowledge them, bless them, deal with them and move on. You are here for so much greatness! Embrace the awesomeness in you and move ahead.

Have something big you want to manifest? Write it out! On the night of the new moon, I like to write out my wishes, usually 5 or so, and meditate on them. You still have time to do this. Write them out, feel them, release them and allow them to show up for you!

Ah isn’t all this energy stuff fantastic?

Why You Must Always Listen to Your Intuition.

Have you checked out my new self help guide book yet? It’s jam packed with powerful tips to help you live the life you deserve. From Hell to Happiness. Click here for more info. 

That. You know what “that” is. You feel it more and more these days. In the beginning you just felt it a little. Then as the days came and went, you felt it more and more. Now it’s so strong, well, you simply can’t ignore it. You know what “that” is. Your intuition. You know it. But…..

…you ignored it.

There It Is Again

Another day arrives and there’s that feeling again. You keep pushing it away though. That feeling. You try to explain it, try to make sense of it, but no one understands it. No one but you. It comes back more often these days. When you first had that feeling it was almost fleeting, a little spark, a flicker of excitement. Now when it arrives, it’s fierce, strong and not to be ignored. But…..

….you did and you do.

There it is again and again and again. Do you know why it keeps coming back, and now, more often than ever before? Do you know why it keeps visiting you and seemingly taunting you? Do you understand what that feeling really truly is?

Your intuition is your soul’s longing.

Yet we keep ignoring it. We ignore that feeling that is our signal, our wake up call, to who we are and why we are here. Short of it being able to scream at you or smack you upside the head, this feeling is your alert.

But we keep ignoring it. Why?

We are all here for a reason. It’s not just to be born, grow up, get a job, pay bills, and die. We are here for FAR FAR more than that. FAR more. Someone invented electricity, someone invented cars, someone invited airplanes, someone invented computers, someone started global charitable organizations. Do you see? These people had a passion and a purpose and they dove right in, embraced it and brought it to life. Some, larger than life.

Why not you?

Oh wait. You keep thinking you can’t. You’re not good enough, smart enough, rich enough, enough enough. You just keep putting out your fire, your spark, because you keep thinking you can’t. You keep thinking you aren’t big enough or special enough to do what your heart is calling you to do.

We think that these dreams, passions, purposes, well they’re for the bigger guys, the smarter guys, certainly not us.

Why not you? Who said you can’t?  Why can’t you be the one? No really, why not? Give me one good reason why you can’t. Know one thing and never forget it. When you want something bad enough, when that fire is burning inside of you SO bad, when you feel that passion and desire with every single ounce of who you are and what you are made up of, nothing and I mean absolutely fucking nothing will stand in your way.

Do you get that? Do you understand that? NOTHING!

Get out of your way.

YOU are the only person standing in your way. YOU are the one denying yourself of the life you deserve to live. YOU are the one who is responsible for your life and responsible for all the decisions you make. Yes you. If you aren’t, then something in your life needs to change and that something is you. Why are you letting someone else control your life?

YOU are the captain of your ship, and the way your ship is going, whatever direction it is sailing, is because of you. But you keep steering it in the wrong direction. You are bringing it safely to calm water, closer to shore. It’s safer there.

You won’t get another chance.

This is it. This is your life, live, right now. Why are you stopping yourself from living the life you really truly passionately and desperately want to live? Why? You don’t get a second chance. You know that right? Do you want to be 75 or 80 or 90 with a sad face and be disappointed because you knew with all your heart when you were younger you could have made a difference and you didn’t and now it’s too late?

Do you get that? Make a difference today. Live your purpose and your passion. Change the world. Do it.

Peace and Love



10 Reasons to Face Fear to Bring More Joy to Your Life.

How is that even possible? More joy in your life by facing fear? Fear is supposed to be debilitating. It’s supposed to be our nemesis. Stop us in our tracks and keep us from a life of happiness, joy and freedom. How on earth are we expected to succeed through fear? Well I got 10 surprising reasons facing fear will bring more joy to you!.

I know I know, lots of questions. None of this even makes sense right now. Fear is over rated. Honest it is. So many people get caught up in it. The word itself is scary. I think fear and fuck are the two most powerful f words that everyone puts way too much negative emphasis on.

For what? For nothing really.

Fear is ugly. Where’s the joy?

Fear is an ugly dark monster that lurks inside of us. I think it has only one eye, so it’s a cyclops looking thing. It is black and slimy. It has two arms and two legs but only 3 fingers and 3 toes on each.

And, wait, get this, it doesn’t have a belly button. Ugh!!!

Now, if you were that ugly you would be a bully too. So how can fear possibly help us to succeed? Before I begin, I’m not talking succeed solely in business ventures. I mean succeed in life in general. Success isn’t about work and fame and power. It’s about life.

1. You question your abilities.

Now this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. You wonder if you can do this. You’ve never done this before, right? Is it possible? Am I capable of taking this on? Fear will always stop you and make you ask yourself a million questions. Successful people find answers.

2. Accept the challenge.

Fear, you’re on. Fear doesn’t think you are going to do shit. It thinks it’s way smarter than you. It also thinks it has way more power than you. Trust me, it doesn’t. It’s only power is in the way it smells. Pee-ew!! Remember what it looks like? Successful people take on challenges with vigor.

3. Push the envelope.

Now that you’ve accepted the challenge, you are looking for envelopes to push. You are determined now to prove this fucker wrong. You now know that no matter what the challenge, how big the envelope, you are going to smash it. period. Successful push the limits.

4. More determination.

Can you remember the last time you felt this much determination? You suddenly have a new lease on life. A new purpose. A new vision for your future. You are hell bent and determined to prove to this little monster that you can do whatever you set your mind to. Successful people have determination.

5. Sense of humour.

Oh yes, you need a sense of humour to deal with this ugly little fucker. He’s gonna poke at you and mock you and you just need to flick him away and laugh right back at him. I mean you gotta laugh at him, he’s so ugly he’s almost cute. You have to laugh. Successful people know when to laugh and keep it light.

6. Make a plan.

You know you have a big challenge ahead, and you got fear poking at you telling you it’s impossible. Get your pad and pen and start drafting up a plan. You already know you can do this, but how? Let’s make a plan. Successful people try to figure things out.

7. The big picture.

You need to stop and look at the big picture. What is the result you are aiming for? What is your end goal? What do you stand to benefit from achieving this thing? You have to remember what your end goal is. Fear will have to take a back seat. Successful people know how big their why is and will not stop until they achieve it.

8. I did THAT?

Oh yes you did. When you push yourself, push the envelope, face fear and flick it away and then actually succeed in setting out what you wanted to do, you can look back with huge pride. Woot!! Look at you go!! You’re unstoppable now.

9. You’re my idol.

You’re going to hear that a lot. People are going to start looking up to you. They are going to be in awe of you. And all that is going to make you feel damn good. And you are going to want to keep doing inspirational shit. Trust me on this one.

10. Sweet victory is now yours.

You’ve got it. That one big bad scary goal you’ve been talking about and thinking about for so long is now yours. You can enjoy it now. You’ve fought, pushed, cried, struggled and did unimaginable things to get it. What a trip that was.

Look at all the good stuff you get from fear, or should I say, when you face fear and show it who is boss. Don’t let fear get in the way of the ridiculously joyful life you are meant to live.

Badass! Wanna go wrestle some alligators?

Peace and Love


March 2018 Full Moon. Magic Energy in the Air.

Are you ready to howl at the moon? I sure am. Oh how I love me a full moon! I usually start getting excited two days before. I’m like a child at Christmas, honest to God. The March 2018 full moon comes with magical energy too. Usually full moons want you to release the old from the previous month and get ready for the new. Not March’s moon. This is what is in store for you tonight!

What does this 2018 full moon mean?

For those who know, each full moon has a different theme. They all want you to take full advantage of the energies but they also want you to take action, whether it be release what no longer serves you, or grab life by the reins and ride full steam ahead.

The full moon in March is in the sign of Virgo, and if you know anything about Virgo’s they are practical and they get shit done. They are generally well organized and hardworking. See the pattern here? The message for this full moon is get shit done.

What’s on your mind?

Is there something you’ve been meaning to do or create or start but have been unclear or maybe even a tad scared? Maybe you don’t have all the answers yet or maybe, just maybe, self doubt and your limiting beliefs have kept you from taking the next step.

The Virgo full moon wants you to start analyzing what it is you need to do and get cracking. You’ve been dicking around for far too long now. How much longer do you want to wait to live the life you are supposed to live? You’ve been doubting yourself for far too long. Roll up your sleeves, dig deep into your self confidence memory bank and get it done already.

But what about yesterday?

Oh right, that horrible thing that happened yesterday that is still keeping you from today. Well, time to let it go my friend. You can’t keep dragging the past into the future. Nothing will change. You will continuously lose focus and never be able to trust, love and believe in yourself again.

During this March 2018 full moon, take the time you need, but not too long, to let go of that crappy thing that happened. Breathe in……breathe out…..let it goooooooooooooooo!! (oh man how I dislike that song)

Get out your pen and paper (too old school?) and start writing out all the stuff that no longer serves you. All of it. It’s time to dump it.

Now what?

If you’re up for advice from a quintessential optimist, I’d say, on another sheet of paper write out the stuff you want to get done that you’ve put off for too long. What are your short term goals (you do have those, right?). Is there a course you’ve been meaning to take or maybe a person you’ve been meaning to reach out to for help for something?.

Start taking inventory of what’s going on in your life right now and decide what can stay and what needs to go. The things that get to stay, do they need a bit of a kickstart into the next level?

Moon bath anyone?

So someone once asked me, “well how do I take in all this energy and when do I write out my shit and who and what and where and why and how??”. Lemme tell ya.

I like to sit out under the moonlight even for at least 20 minutes, to take in the energy and the love. It’s such a powerful ritual (that kinda sounds witchy, amirite?). If you have any gemstones, get those babies out on the windowsill to recharge them.

Write out your goodbye letter to anything and anyone that doesn’t serve you anymore. Write til you can’t write anymore but save some energy to write the letter of the things you DO want and you’re gonna get done.

It’s all up to you!

How bad do you want a happier more fulfilled life? How big is your why to reach your dreams? Remember, it’s up to you to change your life, no one else. If you want something bad enough, you will get it.

Lemme hear ya roar!!

Peace and Love
